Today was the day I finally sucked it up and went to the hair salon.

I haven’t gotten my hair cut in over 2 1/2 years since long before my wedding. It has become long which I loved for a while, but now it just looks stringy and has too much breakage.

It was time for a change.

I went into the hair salon with a couple images to show her what I was thinking:

All of them were basically the same, and I told her that I wanted a slight angle to my hair.

I used to go into hair salons and try to explain what I wanted and it never worked. Always bring a picture of what you are thinking of.

I apologize for the bad picture – I almost forgot to take a before picture so this is in the garage getting ready to head to the hair place.

And one more after picture….

Two things caused a problem with what I was looking for:

1. My husband made me promise no shorter than my shoulders, which I followed. Unfortunately, my layers were so all over the place she couldn’t do TOO much of angle to my hair without going super short. She didn’t cut much at all off the front, the majority of my length was in the back.

2. I had too many layers around my face. She tried to blend them in as much as you can.

I haven’t gotten the husband’s opinion yet but overall I am happy with it.

It is going to take some getting used to because I have had long hair as long as I can remember. I do feel like I lost a couple pounds in hair though :)

Onto non-hair related things….

Last night I made another delicious smoothie in my new Ninja Blender (I am going to have a full review coming soon!)

It was delicious and really helped to crave my sweet cravings last night!

And finally, as you can tell there is no running happening today AGAIN. I plan on some more arms and abs later, but that is about it.

What is your favorite go to snack when you are craving sweets?
